The restaurant not in the middle of the tourist center but within walking distance of the zocalo. Family owned and run for over 60 years, it offers quite an extensive menu of outstanding Oaxaca cuisine. It's not a trendy "chef of the month" type restaurant,...More

Homey ambiance, serving just typical Oaxacan food which Oaxacans eat. So it shouldn't come as a surprise that it's indeed filled with Oaxacans on weekends in particular.

The best traditional cuisine of the Valley of Oaxaca, for three generations we have served more than 50 menu options from 'comal' to your mouth. Come try the real 7 moles. Have breakfast, brunch, lunch or early dinner with us from Monday through Saturday. Oaxacan dishes from farm to table entice locals and tourists, alike.
